i was over the moon when i found out, i already pre ordered it from cdjapan. When i saw that Zokkondition, I Love XXX and Lucky Star were included, i thought it was perfect! It's like she never left and is just continuing off from where she left off!!!! I think the album with have a slightly older vibe about it though, the singles she has released since her break have had a slightly different vibe. I hope the covers are really bright and fit in with the vibes of all her albums!!!

Wow, the covers look AMAZING and nothing like her previous album covers. Love That's why I love Ai-chan, she keeps reinventing herself!

I'll definitely get the CD+DVD version! Boogie

LOVE FANTASTIC sounds really good, it reminds me of Ticket and that's definitely a good thing. Boogie I love the strings! I expected the song to sound more upbeat but I'm completely fine with this sound too.
Not sure whether I like the sound of CHU×CHU yet. Sounds like a mix between Fu Fu Fu and HEART. It sounds a bit... cheesy? Confused I do like the instrumentalization though.
Mawari Mawaru Mawareba Mawaro sounds a lot like Gomen ne. Very relaxing but I don't know... Maybe It'll grow on me. Smile It took me like 4 years to finally start appreciating Pocket so who knows. Laughing
Lai Lai sounds really simple. I do like it though, I wonder what the full song is like.

Hmmm, overall the new songs sound okay. Not amazing, but not bad either. The only track I'm REALLY excited for is LOVE FANTASTIC. Surprised
Also, I liked the piano version of 9 a lot better than the rockish studio version. Blank stare

I would say that among all the new songs : CHUxCHU is the one I like the least. It's indeed kinda cheesy and very 90s (and not in the good way lol).

I totally love the covers. She looks a little sad on the CD+DVD one but CD and CD+Blu-ray are great Smile Now about the new songs...

Love Fantastic is the most promising song for me. A bit repetetive but still catchy. I hope for an amazing music video for this one! My first reaction for CHUxCHU was a facepalm but now I don't know what to think anymore. Maybe it will grow on me... マワリ廻るマワレバ回ろ and ライライ might be interesting, but the previews are too short to tell. ライライ sounds like it's some kind of 'weird short song made to refresh an album'' but, as I said, it's hard to tell. About 9 pop version - at first I was angry because I really loved the piano version, but this one is also ok - sounds happy and upbeat. Well - to summarise - I was expecting something better, but still It's good that we have a few new tracks Boogie

As always, my favorite song is the one everyone hates. lol
I think CHUxCHU is awesome. It's kinda like the early 2000s jpop with some R&B sound. And then you have those really cool chords after the chorus. I can't wait to listen to the full version.

I was expecting LOVE FANTASTIC to be a bit better...but i don't dislike it either.

ライライ sounds really interesting. Her voice sounds so different.

マワリ廻るマワレバ回ろ sounds really nice too, and even if I never really liked 9..this version sounds a bit better.

I like that overall the album has that old jpop sound. I can kinda hear a bit of influence of SU in the album too.

If you order through her LOVE9CUBE PREMIUM SHOP, you will get an extra live from 「AIO PIANO vol.1」 : LOVER SOUL.

Do you guys think I should preorder the album or buy it on the stores?
Is there something extra if you preorder it?

i was afraid of this -__- i already preordered it from HMV together with Rabbit. the fanclub site says that the extras are the same that some other companies offer, but i don't know if HMV is not offering it or if they just haven't updated their site (the playlist of the DVD also doesn't match that from the fanclub's site)... I wonder if I should cancel my order at HMV and order it from the premium shop
